late friday night into early saturday morning. there will be a landfall, it's not a big deal, with a weak storm system you're not going to have the eye of the hurricane or anything like that. it's just, that's when the center will cross. we'll watch that on radar. it looks like, houston, you're out of the cone of uncertainty. that's this yellow cone. it should come onshore around corpus christi or brownsville and then it will dissipate as it moves into the mountainous terrain. here's how the computer models, each of these squigly lines represents each computer, and an almost unanimous decision, it will take us south to corpus christi. only one of our computers is hinting on a northward's track. in the dark red, this is where we need the rainfall the most, so it's actually going to head for a beneficial area. the problem is, it's such a small tropical storm that it's not going to be a widespread, it's not going to hit a large area. it's only going to have a small impact. and ed why, talk about -- they would just like the clouds from this storm. with 101 in san antonio, 104 in
>>> good thursday, everybody. i'm contessa brewer covering the big news coast to coast. we begin with breaking news out of texas, where authorities have arrested an army private assigned to fort campbell, kentucky. officials found bomb-making materials in his hotel room. that arrest came after someone reportedly overheard the private threatening to stage an attack on the army post at fort hood. fort hood was the scene of a deadly shooting attack in november 2009. major nadal hassan is accused of killing 13 people and wounding dozens of others. pete williams has the latest from washington now. pete, what do you know about this arrest of the private? >> reporter: right. well, good afternoon. you saw killeen, texas on that map. that's where he was arrested. he's a private first class assigned to fort campbell, but arrested in texas yesterday and according to law enforcement officials, what happened is he went into a gun store in killeen, texas and was asking questions that the gun store owner thought was suspicious. he was also buying smokeless powder which can be used for a variety
, but if a shrunken version of the boehner big does -- or if they go to an emergency extension, the president will be right back in the same predicament he's in right now. i think a lot of people are upset. they blame the republicans more than the democrats for the gamesmanship, but the fact is the republicans have also backed the president into a corner, even if they're doing it in a way that's not popular. >> i want you to analyze these two possibilities, one the president could give away more of the store, more spending cuts, maybe enough to get us thus this increase. which would make the redhots happy. no tax increase at all. the other possibility is to marry what boehner wants right now with what mcconned was talking about next year, where next year it can be are can be raised by the president, only the house would have to come back with a two thirds veto, so it seems there is a possibility for compromise, but the easiest thing is for the president to throw the whole bomb game, say, you win this year, not next year. >> i don't think he can do >> i don't think he can do that, chris. when
delays the big vote indicating he does not have votes to pass it. it all raises the big question, has the tea party taken control of boehner's house? >>> plus, wouldn't you love to know what mr. economy thinks about all this? too bad. because mr. romney is not talking. how's that for leadership. >>> and waiting with wait until you meet the latest extremist to log on to perry's prayer route. i'm al sharpton. breaking news. boehner abruptly delayed a make or break vote on his own debt plan. the speaker frantically been trying to whip up support from tea party republicans all day long. it is an indication that he simply does not have the votes to pass his plan. it is unclear when the vote will happen. the fear here would be a stunning setback for his leadership and for the g oo p establishment as it battles with party members. joining me is nbc's luke russell live on capitol hill. luke, can you tell us what is happening here? >> good evening reverend al. an alarming piece of news that came to us about 15 minutes ago. democratic aides received word from the republican floor staff and in f
to our financial markets. >> that is a big statement. house democratic leadership team coming out saying that. the house has rejected the 14th amendment solution. but we're still six days out. for leaders like mr. clyburn to go down that road gives the president some pretty good cover and a pretty good idea. the president doesn't want to overreach, but his base would love it. it's going to wipe out any discretionary cuts that would hurt low and fixed income americans. get your cell phones out, i want to know what you think. should the president invoke the 14th amendment to resolve the debt crisis? text a for yes, b for no to 622639 and can you always go to our new blog at ed.msnbc.com. >>> joining us now is donna edwards ofรง maryland. she's a member of the progressive caucus. congressman elliott engle, jared nabler are holding a press conference to urge president obama to use the 14th amendment as a backup option. would you join those folks tomorrow? what do you think about the 14th amendment option right now? the white house has said repeatedly no, but the game could change. what do y
's going to play pretty big hardball on this to borrow a phrase, chris. seems to me he really is boehner's back. not just having boehner's back today or boehner's back tomorrow, but he's going to have boehner's back. the question is, can harry reid pry away seven or eight republicans to work with him? where does that happen? at this point i don't think you'll see any movement on a deal publicly, at the earliest, not until sunday. >> is the real fear not that there's a second effort to cut spending a bit more, but the second part of this spending cuts which would come at the end of this year, the vote on that, would actually cut to the bone. go after entitlements, medicare, after things the democrats treasurer jer is that the big fear? i think pelosi, former speaker, now democratic leader, was alluding to that in her very strong statement against the boehner plan tonight? >> reporter: that is one fear. you talk to democrats familiar with the way these negotiations have gone, and they'll say, look, this first $1.2 2r8 trillion, the first round ever cuts they have in their plans are almost
're going to see something between the reid and boehner plans, the big difference is the boehner plan forces us to raise the debt ceiling again and forces us to accept a $1.8 trillion or more in cuts from the so-called super commission, and if we don't do it, we go through another crises. also a vote on the budget amendment. i think you could get something more rationalal to incentivize another plan down the road and have something with enough pressure coming from the markets, both parties could vote for. >> you make it sound like if reasonable people had a conversation about this there might actually be a solution, so thanks for being on and talking with us today. >> glad to be here. >> that was ezra klein, columnist for "the washington post" and bloomberg and also an msnbc policy analyst. thanks so much. >> thank you. >> now, ask yourself, would you -- no, not you, nancy. would you want john boehner's job right now, trying to placate a gaggle of angry tea partiers and stave off an economic calamity at the same time? i suspect there are moments even he doesn't want this job, but he's got it
they are in crisis mode. a big vote coming this afternoon in the house. members will consider speaker john boehner's debt bill. but even if he can rein in tea party members to get it passed, 51 democratic senators vowed to block it. >> if this debate continues to be driven by the extremes, well, whether we go off the cliff august 2nd or go off the cliff at the end of the year, we'll be at the same place. >> i've got a little rebellion on my hands every day. it comes with the territory. >> you're not worried. >> never let them see you sweat. >> i think we'll end up in a stalemate. i anticipate that the boehner bill will get through the house today after he's pushed his folks kind of hard, and then it will be dead on arrival once it gets to the senate. >> of course, time is running out. default just five days away and things are getting so bad the u.s. treasury is now weighing which bills to pay if the country defaults. michael the correspondent for "washington post," and louise story, according to politico republican leaders are very prepared to say to the president take it or leave it. and if he l
is not one of the big players in all of this. he has taken a role where he made is clear on the floor where he is fully supportive. he said what needed to be said. throw sug port there. but privately many other senators are telling us mccon sell working on a deal. mcconnell's aides say no, that's not going on. if you piece these things together, you get the sense where someone who thinks he can see the end game, thought i had it a while back and the opportunity for members of congress to disapprove a debt ceiling vote, which is part of the mechanics of hoop jumping legislatively is actually a plus for some tea party members who don't want to be on board right now. second ago, paul ducked under the camera to get to another location. he is another one i was thinking of. when you vote against the debt ceiling but give the president that authority that might be way for everybody to get what they want. it is of course too soon to see how it will factor out. but watching mix mcconnell, you will see someone who gets a sense of how things work and to see how he uses the power he earned all this tim
even though their plan is not as big as they wanted it to be, but a short time ago senate majority leader harry reid warned that the bill will be rejected in short order. >> as soon as the house completes the vote tonight or this afternoon, the senate will move to take up that message that they sent to us. it will be defeated. they know that. >> so, no word as of yet from the president today on the standoff. earlier today, press secretary jay carney said that any bill would have to absolutely extend the debt ceiling until 2013, and nbc's kristen welker joins me from the white house. also in the press briefing, jay carney said that the bill being worked on right now is d.o.a. when it reaches the senate. >> yes, that is right. hello, thomas. good afternoon to you. he said it is d.o.a. and 58 senators have said they will come out to vote against it and he reiterated the call that the white house is not going to get behind anything that is not a long-term increase of the debt ceiling. but you know, people have been pushing this on this saying that past presidents have increased the deb
the will of the house the go forward? >> indeed. that is one of the big m.o.s when he came into the house, and said so much hot air in the place, and let the people's voice be heard and it is the people's house, and they would be ultimately be heard, and he realizes the stakes on the debate of the debt, and if this is not out of the house of representatives, they have nowhere to go as a house of conference and it reflects poorly on his leadership to show that he cannot stop the influence of some of the most far right members of party who tried to undercut him and undercut members of defense by soliciting outside interest groups to get them to vote against the bay no bioehner bil. it is the march of the 216. >> and luke, loud mouth, thank you for the moment. can i come to the silver fox, mike viqueira. >> he is the silver fox. >> and you were at the press conference with jay carney and how was tlit? >> well, a 20th figure once said, we are seeing politics is the most gruesome effect. and this is sausage making up here. this thing is not going to be resolved today or tomorrow or this weekend and the two
big things done, we can -- washington can still get big things done. this is about continuing to have a strong economy and continuing to compromise and take maybe a couple chapters out of tip o'neil, bob michael, ronald reagan, president clinton, people that have served in this town with distinction and gotten big things done through compromise. >> jay? >> some house republicans said that they've already compromised and that's what the boehner bill is, it is a compromise. >> well, i'm going to let jay -- >> oh, come on! >> i'm going to let jay do his job here. i'm not here to take his job. i'm here to try and put forth a message that in one of the highest unemployment sectors in the country, where we have friends and neighbors all over the country that are out of work during the construction season, they ought to go back to work. they shouldn't be held hostage. these projects shouldn't be held hostage, and we have 4,000 faa employees through no -- hardworking people that come to work every day and do their jobs. >> can you explain what the bottleneck is on the faa bill, from your pers
believes that the boehner problem is anything more than a big, wet kiss to the right wing. i mean the tea party. that's what i mean. it's too bad the caucus is run by so little people. >> when i asked the plan, the aids pointed to a speech. congress can't vote on a speech. a veto threat won't prevent default. >> we are urging the republicans to step back, put their party caucuses aside, put their pledges to grover norquist aside and put this country first. >> it's unfair from the president of the united states to lead from behind. it's unfair for the president of the united states not to come forward with a specific plan that, perhaps to be considered by both bodies, but only to go out and give lectures. >> we are not going to hold this country hostage to the tea party. those folks over there, about 80 of them, they pledged to grover norquist. i want to pledge allegiance to the united states of america. that's what we should be doing. >> good morning. it is thursday, july 28th. look at the beautiful shot of new york city. welcome to "morning joe." yes, with us on set -- >> look at him. >>
that the boehner problem is anything more than a big wet kiss to the right wing and i mean the tea party. that's who i mean. it's too bad his caucus is being run by such a small number of people. >> what about the president's plan? when i asked the president's plan, his aides point to a speech and a veto threat. with all due respect, congress can't vote on a speech. and a veto threat won't prevent default. >> we are urging the republicans now to step back, put their party caucuses aside, put their pledges to grover norquist aside, put their caucus pledges to one congress manor the other aside, and put this country first. >> it's unfair of the president of the united states to lead from behind. it's unfair of the president of the united states not to come forward with a specific plan that perhaps could be considered by both bodies, but only to go out and give lectures. >> we are not going to hold this country hostage to the tea party. that's where it's at. you know, those folks over there, about 80 of them and maybe even more of those republicans, they pledged to grover norquist. i want to pled
. there is -- there aren't that many big differences between the boehner plan and the reid plan other than one critical difference which is under john boehner's plan, we would be right back in this mess right at the holiday season, having this same debate, creating uncertainty in the economy at one of the most critical times for the economy, the holiday season. we don't want to do that. that's the wrong thing to do. that's not just the president's opinion. that's just not the opinion of independent financial analysts. that was actually john boehner's opinion and eric cantor's opinion just a few weeks ago when they were making the same case the president is making. >> true enough, but there is plenty of precedent for short-term debt ceiling limits being raised. aside from ruining all of our holidays, what's the damage in revisiting this six months from now? is the president really, when it comes down to it after the warning from all the big bankers, is he going to veto a short-term increase? >> there are two points. first is we are in a completely different situation now than we have ever been. there ha
administration. that's not unusual. and that's a big deal by the president only based on election cycles. that's not important. the more important thing, how do we get to the point where we send a message to the international community we're going to do what's necessary to put our house in order. >> do you get the sense that that's going to happen? >> oh think so, ultimately. you're seeing a lot of theatrics. everything kind of play out and the way it's going play out and not find where people really are until they have to be where, before this thing implodes and i don't think it's going to. i think you know, come tuesday, sometime during the day tuesday, we'll have something figured out. >> well, do you have any sense, play analyst, if you wouldn't mind, whether that's the boehner deal? is that your deal? where's the road map for that? >> it's some combination between what perry, reid and boehner agreed to last sunday, and working the politics and the votes out on that to get it to where it passes the house. the problem is, something will pass the senate. but it has to be snag will pass the h
of the things that aides don't necessarily want to shine a big bright light on. what we have been told is that certainly the senior level staffers who, as you understand, are critically important in that, they do a lot of the heavy lifting in negotiations, so the top man for speaker boehner, top man for majority leader reid have had some communication. it kind of hit a wall when it seemed like there wasn't a heck of a lot left to say until the house sort of worked through this process that we think will come to a head today and kind of the wave, point where it seemed like boehner didn't have the votes then the rejiggering of the plan. aides tell me they think that the new number coming from the congressional budget office scoring the boehner plan, gives some credibility to members because those who were the loudest voices saying they want aides can look at this and say they didn't just try to push it through and ignore the congressional budget office, they went back and tried to fix it and admitted they fell short the first time around. they're hoping that will lend some goodwill to th
and a beautiful summer. we ought to get outside and debate the big picture, what kind of country we want to live in, what kind of country we want this to be. that's why i like politics, roosevelt, reagan, kennedy, the stuff even young kids like me cared about. that's "hardball," thanks for being with us. "the last word with lawrence o'donnell" starts right now. >> joel burns is with us tonight to respond to michele bachmann's statement on bullying. but bullying isn't the only danger the tea party just doesn't understand. >> first of all, you don't look happy on the front page of "the new york times." >> first, speaker of the house john boehner, it doesn't get better. >> the speaker of the house is being whip sawed today between his tea party caucus. >> this is the moment of the boehner speakership. >> the plan is officially a flop. >> the budget office downgrading the revenue projections. >> told gop lawmakers to get their "blank" in line. >> get their behind in line, thomas. >> he was really cracking the whip. >> it says boehner's grip on his caucus is put to test in standoff. >> the world's sa
picture, the big focus of it, we have studies indicating 85% of lgbt students surveyed nationally say they have been bullied at school. this is, by no means, individualized to particular school districts. >> absolutely. again, it is a nationwide problem, but there are cultures created within these school districts about how to deal with it, and you find in areas either in states or school districts where the -- they have policies prohibiting this type of activity of bullying and of prohibiting any kind of discussion about homosexuality. the suicide rates amongst lgbt teens are much lower. that's something proved out in a variety of places, the fact it's higher in anoka-hennepin point to problems there. >> joel burns, thank you for returning to "the last word" tonight. where you made your network television today buh and in the process won a glad award. thanks for joining us again. >> i'm happy to be here and i hope the congresswoman ends her silence soon. >> thank you, joel. thank you. you can have the last word
